Figure 1: Composition of B.barnetti venom, studied at the proteomic level (Kohlhof et al., 2012). The venom contains the following families: disintegrin, CRISP, PA2 (phospholipase A2), serine protease, C-type lectin (true venom lectin), LAAO (L-amino-acid oxidase also known as flavin monoamine oxidase), SVMP (snake venom metalloproteinase).
Clinical Effects, Treatment, Antivenoms See the Clinical Toxinology Resources Website.
Lethal dose LD(50) is 5.058 mg/kg by intraperitoneal injection into mice (86.9-120.4 ug/mouse) (Kohlhoff et al., 2012).
